It was a special weekend recently when members and friends came together in celebration. Republic of Ireland sanctuary

Jacquie Brennan, leader of the work in the Republic of Ireland, writes: ‘I am brimming with gratitude. It has been such a beautiful weekend! Colum [Hayward] led a deep and illuminating retreat on Saturday, where sixteen of us shared the profound resonance of John the Beloved and the Celtic Church in Ireland. There was a beautiful connection and fellowship in the group, enhanced by Esther leading us in sounding the AUM and singing St Patrick’s Breastplate…

Yesterday nine of us came together for the dedication of our lovely little sanctuary, enfolding our bright company from North and South, in an inspiring vision of our purpose and service. Afterwards we shared a happy lunch followed by delightful music from Esther and her magical harp. Joy!’

The trustees recently held their annual meeting with the Lodge’s investment managers. Our aims for the investment fund are to produce:

• income to help meet the annual running costs of the Lodge

• capital growth to support the temple rebuild project and in the longer-term protect the value of the fund from the effects of inflation.

Last year we further strengthened our ethical investment criteria which included making best endeavours to exclude investments in palm oil production or deforestation. We also excluded investments in companies that produce violent computer games.

An amazing phenomenon unfolded this year. The impact of the White Eagle Lodge’s ethical investment strategy over the last twelve months had a positive effect on performance of +1.56%. Normally application of ethical criteria to financial investments results in a reduction in performance.

Our ethical criteria caused our investment managers to invest more heavily in companies which provide technologies addressing climate change. This includes a U.S. energy company producing increasing amounts of energy from solar, thereby allowing closure of coal-fired power stations. The demonstrated success of this approach will hopefully encourage other companies to do the same.

Another investment is in a company that makes carbon fibre used for wind turbines and aimed at producing lighter weight aircraft which reduce the carbon footprint of air travel.

Hannah says: ‘After a short journey to our own 'peaceful place' in our imagination, you will have the opportunity to make a simple shadow puppet inspired by your meditation using recycled materials; then we will take it in turns to show our creation to the group from behind the screen, with shadow shapes and beautiful colours and textures shining through. A good opportunity for children to learn about meditation and for adults to reconnect with their playful and creative nature.’

White Eagle Thought for February

'The guardian angel is there to inspire, guide and help but never to force the soul. No guide, whether human or angelic, may do this. The soul, having free will, may decide its own course within limits. A man or woman’s gift of free will is always respected. The soul must choose, but at the same time you get this helpful influence.'

Because of its popularity we now post twice weekly. On Friday there is a thoughtful extended White Eagle quotation and many friends like to share this on their own Facebook page, so it is a lovely way to help spread White Eagle’s teaching and wisdom.

On Monday mornings we share an evocative reflection by one of the team at New Lands or in London (usually this is Jeremy Hayward) and this brings plentiful engagement from readers.Every post is accompanied by a photograph of the natural world at New Lands so we keep homely local colour as well as extending around the world!

If you are on Facebook and would like to join in, just click on the photograph.
